Take a Walk

Summer's almost over and all I have to show for it are these lousy bug bites. Though it has been some considerable time since I have last posted, you haven't missed much. As I've spent a cumulative three hours outside this entire summer, it's no surprise that in Crayola terminology, my skin has remained an unflattering "Baby Powder" white. While the rest of my family members maintain their "Blast Off Bronze" complexion, I stand off to the side looking sickly and pale. In my defense, Asian cultures pride themselves with having fair skin. For instance, this past weekend I came across this article in the New York Times. Yeah, how's that for extreme skin care measures? That just kicked my 80 SPF in the face.
Apart from my nonexistent tan, the second most notable thing that has occurred is that my music taste has slowly deteriorated. If I wasn't so ashamed to scrobble my lastfm, you'd find more than enough One Direction... All petty things aside, my life has remained very consistent. I'm now seventeen, so that's new. After compiling a list of activities that I can now "legally" preform, I discovered that I can
  1. See an R-rated movie
  2. Donate blood without my parent's permission
  3. Buy alcohol in Cyprus, North Korea, and Greece
I also discovered that being only seventeen is still pretty lame. I did however receive some pretty KA gifts. Pictured below: Jeffrey Campbell "Raid", 20th Century Art Book Post Cards, Spiderman Pin, Pokémon Cards (duh).
